The U.S.-Iranian Relationship and the
Future of International Order
This event was held on
This symposium will assess the nature of current U.S.-Iranian relations and explore how the two state’s strategic choices will affect the international order in the future. The launch point for the symposium will be the forthcoming publication of Going to Tehran by Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann Leverett, from which a number of related issues may be examined, including how current interpretations of the NPT will impact its future viability as well as U.S. policy on threshold states, and the effect that an Israeli or U.S. strike on Iranian nuclear targets, absent Security Council authorization, will have on the way other rising non-Western powers perceive the current institutional and legal frameworks governing the use of force.
